Bishop Joseph Fan Zhongliang of Shanghai, who spent decades under arrest for his faith, died March 16 at the age of 97.

He was secretly ordained as coadjutor bishop of Shanghai Feb. 27, 1985, at a time when the city's bishop, Ignatius Kung, was still in jail.

Bl. John Paul II named Bishop Fan as the legitimate Bishop of Shanghai in March 2000, upon the death of Cardinal Kung.

Eternal Memory.

Doesn't the "patriotic" church like to follow Tridentine ritual like the "latin rite" Catholics?

May the memory of the Lord's servant, the Bishop Joseph, be eternal!
